How do I refresh my IP address?

To check that these settings are configured on your computer, refresh your IP address.

To do this:

  •  On a Windows PC, select Start > Run, in the Run dialog box type cmd and click OK. At the command line prompt type in ipconfig /release, and then press <Enter>. The current IP address is released, and the command prompt displays. At the command prompt, type in ipconfig /renew and press <Enter>. The new IP address displays. Close the command window.
  • On a Mac, select System Preferences > Network > Built-in Ethernet > TCP/IP, then  select Using DHCP from the drop-down list, and click on Renew DHCP lease.

NOTE: Rebooting your computer is another way of renewing the IP address.
